Building a Virtualized UC Development Environment: Part 4 – Installing Applications and SDKs

This is Part 4 of a series of blog posts on setting up a virtualized development environment based on the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 VHDs

Part 3


Now that we have the Terminal Services role installed on the TS virtual machine, it’s time to install the applications and SDKs necessary for developing for Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Exchange 2007 and the UC Platform SDKs. 

The easiest way to install applications on to a Hyper-V virtual machine is to use DVD media or ISO images on the host machine.  If you need to create ISO images of the trials below, ImgBurn is a great utility. 

1. Start all the virtual machines in the order specified in the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 VHDs setup document.

2. In Hyper-V Manager, right-click on the TS machine, select Connect and use the administrator/pass@word1 credentials to login.

3. To mount a DVD or ISO image in the TS virtual machine select Media, DVD Drive and Insert Disk… and browse to the location of the DVD or ISO image.


4. Install the products and SDKs below in the following order:


Now that the TS virtual machine has all the products and SDKs necessary for UC development, you’re ready to connect to the Terminal Services environment for the first time.  I’ll post the login process in my next post.

Please respond with comments if you run into any issues.
